We, at Campbellwicks, have all been very excited about the recent launch of nine new colours. Having known they were in the pipeline, quite some time ago and seeing them introduced by Farrow & Ball’s Colour Curator Joa Studholme (who is a colour Goddess) back in June, it has felt a long wait for them to ‘come out’! But out, they now are, and we are thoroughly enjoying having them in our palette to play with.
Over the next few news articles, we are going to introduce you to each of the new hues and give some suggestions on how you might enjoy them in your home.
Rangwali takes its name from the powder which is thrown so enthusiastically during the Holi festival of colour in India. It has to be my favourite! It exudes happiness and vibrancy and works particularly well when teamed up with similar exuberant hues.
Here it is teamed up with Jane Churchill’s Mardi Gras fabric, together with Pelt, Vardo and All White. I’m not sure many will be brave enough to use it all over the walls but as a pop of colour on a front door or roll top bath, even an island unit in a kitchen, the colour would never fail to make you squeal with delight!
For this scheme, I’m imagining an open plan kitchen, with units painted in Vardo and an island unit painted in Rangwali. Neutral and crisp All White on the walls and some stencilled Pelt (to create a tile effect) on the floor. Blinds and cushions made up in the fabric would pull the scheme together.
How do you think you’d use it? We’d love to hear your ideas.
